De Nieuwe Kerk, Amsterdam

3.1
#31 of 120 in Museums in Amsterdam
Originally built in 1408 to accommodate the town's growing number of church-goers, today De Nieuwe Kerk houses art exhibitions in its spacious interior. A fire destroyed most of the original structure, which was subsequently rebuilt in the Gothic style. In addition to its regular program of temporary art exhibits, events, and concerts, the church also hosts Dutch royal investiture ceremonies and royal weddings. During your visit, look for the beautiful stained-glass windows, intricate wooden carvings on the pulpit, and gilded choir gate. Visit the website for information on current exhibits.

  • The pictures are impressive and far-reaching, but neither the printed text nor in the audio guide (even without induction the hearing aids-embarrassing) is offered German (well, he understands English) ...

  • Honestly magnificent. Can add the whole new dimension to almost any exposition it hosted at the same time staying calm deep and mystical. Seriously, visit it even if you've already seen what's on show
  • I was like, damn Jesus! Yo crib is awesome. You live here for real? Fancy, well located and good old structure. How much is the rent? This is Amsterdam, you know. Those mts² ain't cheap, dog. Anyway, looking forward for your birthday and Santa's. I loved the place, by the way
